Tennessee Legislature Passes Bill Barring Representatives of the United Nations from Monitoring Elections

On April 8, the Tennessee legislature passed HB 2410, which says, “Any representative of the United Nations appearing without a treaty ratified by the United States senate, shall not monitor elections in this state. This act shall take effect upon becoming a law, the public welfare requiring it.”

    Good grief.

    Can the Federal government redeclare the civil war, immediately surrender, and just let the South go their own way?

      You left out a phrase. The amendment actually says:

      “Any representative of the United Nations appearing without a treaty ratified by the United States senate stating that the United Nations can monitor elections in this state, shall not monitor elections in this state.”

    I think you’re wrong about this.

    HB2410, which did pass, is here (http://www.capitol.tn.gov/Bills/108/Bill/HB2410.pdf) and doesn’t say anything about the UN.

    The UN language does appears in two bills, HB 0589 amd SB 0721. But it looks like they’ve died in committee. (See http://wapp.capitol.tn.gov/apps/BillInfo/Default.aspx?BillNumber=HB0589)

    JW, read the amendment to HB 2410. The amendment stripped out all the original language and substituted the United Nations ban.

    Minority rule legislatures ???
    State cops ???
    State judges and courts ???

    I hope the other states don’t follow TN’s lead. I mean, we’re already slipping when it comes to civil liberties and fair elections as it is.

  7. I’m no fan of the UN but SOMEBODY needs to monitor our fake elections and more to the point, point out that they are in fact fake.

  8. We need to get the United States out of the United Nations and get the United Nations out of the United States.

    Doesn’t the Copenhagen Agreement authorize this?

      You are probably thinking of the Helsinki Final Act of OSCE. This is not a treaty nor was it ratified by the United States Senate.

    Right on! US Über Alles!

    We tried to go our own way, to escape the cluster that the US has become, and y`all decided we had to suffer. Suck it up buttercup.

    Tennessee has the right idea, how would the UN enforce it’s observations? With foreign troops? One needs only look at the US to figure out that once the UN has put troops here, here they will stay.

    Now y`all argue about a breach in Civil Rights, what kind of Civil Rights would any of us have with foreign troops lodged on our soil? Troops that wouldn’t hesitate to fire on American Citizens for whatever perceived breach of order they could manifest.

    Ask yourselves these questions before you condemn Tennessee for standing up for its ability to oversee its own elections.

    Any investigation should start where the Dead people always vote. Ohio and Florida come to mind. Y`all have a great day, ya hear!
